Bishop Brennan Calls for a Special Collection for the People of the Ukraine

The Most Reverend Robert Brennan, Bishop of Brooklyn has announced that a special voluntary collection, to aid those affected by the War in Ukraine, will begin this weekend in Roman Catholic churches throughout Brooklyn and Queens. Last week, Bishop Brennan wrote to parish administrators asking such a collection be taken up as soon as possible.

“We have all seen the painful images of devastation and continue to hear of the suffering and the deaths caused by the war in Ukraine. Our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected by this terrible war, most especially those who have been forced to flee their homes. We pray for peace and join with our Holy Father, and people throughout the world, in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine,” said The Most Reverend Robert Brennan, Bishop of Brooklyn.

The Diocese of Brooklyn will send the money from this special collection to Ukraine for distribution and direct assistance to those who have been affected.

Checks for this collection should be made payable to the: Compostela Fund of the RC Diocese of Brooklyn with the notation “Ukraine” in the check’s memo section.

Donations may also be sent via mail to:
